Question:
Hi Alex. What do you think of this deal? Clippers get D-Howard, Bulls get E-Gordon, and Orlando gets Asik, Gibson, Kamen, and Charlotte’s 1st rounder.

Alex Kennedy:
It’s great for the Clippers and Bulls, but I don’t think Orlando would agree to it. I think they’d much rather land Brook Lopez or Andrew Bynum.

Also, from what I’ve heard, Dwight Howard isn’t interested in signing an extension with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Jameer/Redick/Bass and/or Anderson, picks? Worth a shot for the Magic.

I still think Paul could land in Orlando and yes, I do agree with you, trading gortat was a mistake, but you have to look at it this way, gortat was given a long term contract, so It wasn't as bad a it might seem trading him, but he could of been used in a paul trade I think. Paul on the magic, even if it is a rental, could be good for many of reasons, but personally, I think paul and howard playing together could motivate them both to just stay in Orlando then to continue to play together. my thoughts, anyways. and they could amnesty Hedo or Arenas this season and have some cap next year to not only resign these guys, but maybe add some talent.

Yes, regardless if they both end up leaving, it was the best shot of giving Dwight the opportunity to play with a star and there would be no one to blame if it happened. I don't know why you wouldn't want to stay in Orlando, its a brand new facility, great weather, lower tax. It's up to Otis to do it though. It isn't LA or New York, but neither one of those guys seem like someone that needs a huge market, just my opinion.

KB-Pau-DH2012
12-02-2011, 07:23 PM
I think it's about status as well for Dwight. He would have to share the LA big-man spotlight with Blake if he were to go to the Clips. Although Pau is an All-star and #2 option, he doesn't have that Hollywood star power and hype that Blake has, so Dwight would be the main big man household name in Lakerland with Kobe having the star power in the backcourt.

agree big time. I mean, personally, I love Orlando and I know myself wouldn't mind moving back there one day and like you said about the lower tax and no state income tax. I think it would be ideal and even if paul didn't agree to an extension right away, I think smith should do it if he can. if nothing else, you will just give orlando a lot of cap space next year if paul and howard leave.

I guess he doesn't want to form the best Big 3 In the league with Griffin along with Paul or D-Will. Griffin and Howard playing together would be the equivalent of Karl Malone and Shaq playing together in their primes.

Blake and Dwight would take away each other's inside games. Each guy wouldn't operate at their individual full effective capabilities, and neither big man is an effective passer and playmaker out of post at this point in their careers. At least with Pau and Dwight you have the perfect combo of finesse and power, Pau can extend his game to the perimeter (unlike Blake) and be comfortable with having Dwight dominate in the paint, and Pau is probably the best passing big man from the low and high pinch post in the game today. He can get Dwight easy buckets near the rim.

He wasn't able to work-out ALL off-season and for the start of the season because of Mono. He's had ONE bad rebounding season and he's a 23 year-old 7 footer that can score 20 PPG.

Have to agree, people really underrate Lopez. He's a great offensive player, he would need a tough PF alongside to help him out on defense, but at least he has offense down. And I did not know he was coming off a season dealing with Mono. Regardless, he is a little soft.

You can totally build an offense around Lopez. He doesn't even need to be in the paint to score. He's very efficient from outside of the paint. You give him a tough big-man too play with and you have a VERY good front court.

The entire offseason he was dealing with mono. Which really weakened him. I dont think he is THAT soft. He never gets hurt. And the first 2 seasons of his career he averaged 8.5 RPG. So the mono clearly had a effect on his rebounding.

He is a real asset on Offense for any team. Terrific scorer. 20 ppg and when he played with Deron it was even higher.

I don't think that would be a problem since L.A has had great Centers before Shaq. Mikan, Wilt, Kareem, Shaq.. They all seemed to work out fine despite the fact that they "had to live in x shadow's". Once you start winning all of that is forgotten.

Which wouldn't make any sense from the Magic standpoint. They'd be trading for an injury prone center (has only played one full season) and a 32 year old 6th man looking for a big contract.

They're going to be REBUILDING. That won't help the process at all.

Getting Lopez + 2 Firsts (In a VERY DEEP draft), while losing Hedo then being able to amnesty Gilbert Arenas.....now that REALLY helps the process.

I've said it over and over.......D12 don't wanna play in Brooklyn or the Lakers little brothers! He wants to play in a major mkt (Lakers). I also guarantee that CP3 wants nothing to do with the Clippers as well.



While Kupchak remained guarded with his answers, Lakers forward Matt Barnes was much more open when asked about the rumors surrounding his former teammate Howard.

"You know, I've been hearing Dwight. I've been hearing Baron [Davis]. I've been hearing stuff a lot lately," Barnes said. "I've talked to both of those guys and they want to be here, so we'll see what happens."

Does anyone know what the Lakers offer would even be? Are we just assuming it would be Bynum?

No, it would be Bynum + Odom (both deals have a team option next season, so good for the Magic in that sense). Plus I'm guessing our prospect, who I really like, Devin Ebanks (Trevor Ariza clone), plus draft picks. LA could probably get a 3rd team involved so that they can somehow take on Hedo's bad contract, but who knows.

Really though LA could offer, Bynum/Gasol + Odom + Ebanks, + Picks right now

Clips make sense too, but I think FA's aren't digging Don Sterling too much. Guy is weird, and people are going to question his committment to building and sustaining a great team for a long time. Is he willing to go all in like Dr. Buss? Have to remember the Clips will never be the cash cow that the Lakers are either, they absolutely dominate LA, and are basically the Steelers of the NBA with their support across the country.

Ah right right, good fix man thanks. I completely forgot how the new CBA made trades easier. I agree, it's LA and NJ at the top. OKC maybe, but I'm guessing Orlando would want one of Westbrook and Harden, and Ibaka on top, because I doubt they want Perkins' new big contract.

2 of the 5 players in the NBA he would like to play with are both on the Nets!

I dont see how the Nets are not the front runners.

- They can offer the Magic a really good trade offer if they wanna rebuild.
- Dwight would be joining a superstar
- We have a ton of money to spend
- He would def resign with us b/c we will be in Brooklyn next year along with Deron.

Cano-Montero...
12-02-2011, 10:57 PM
THis would also play a big role for PAul and Howard to push for a trade before the deadline...

The financial implications of the new CBA for Dwight Howard and Chris Paul could be significant, depending on where each player wants to spend his future.

Howard can play the entire 11-12 season with the Magic, opt out of his deal and end up elsewhere (by signing outright or sign-and-trade) for $80.5 million over four seasons. If he gets traded before the deadline, opts out and then re-signs with the team that acquired him, he can sign for $110.8 million over five seasons.

If Paul plays the entire season with the Hornets and ends up elsewhere, he can receive up to $75.8 million over four seasons. If he gets traded to another team, opts out and then re-signs with that team, he can receive up to $100.2 million over five seasons.

In other words, Howard and Paul would be able to preserve their Bird rights if they're moved before the trade deadline -- the acquiring teams would hold these rights and could therefore exceed the soft cap to offer them maximum-salary contracts. But under the new rules, Bird rights can no longer be transferred in any sign-and-trade deal.

in Brooklyn he can build a dynasty.

It doesnt matter how much he owns. The public views him as part of the team.

Lebron wanted to team up with SUPERSTAR(s). The Heat were the only team last year who can offer him that because of the $ they had to spend.

Deron did not say he doesnt want to sign a extension with the Nets. He said he wont sign one now because of the new CBA deal it would not make any sense. Try reading the entire article.

Why is that?

My bad, I edited my statement, clicked the submit buttom by accident. I changed it now though. I think as of right now if the Nets get Howard, I still don't have them ahead of the Heat. Miami still has arguably 2 of the top 3 players in the league (I actually think Howard is the best), and they've been together longer. I think the Nets would still need another scoring punch in all truth. But if they do get Howard, he and Williams will bring in more talent over time. The advantage still though IMO goes to Miami, because while teams are still assembling, they're going to get more comfortable

Well I mean there was a lot of hesitation and forgetfulness on his part when he was trying to spit D-Will's name. I mean if he was so "dead-on" set on wanting to play with D-Will, that would have been the first name to come out of his mouth, but instead, he said CP3's name. Meaning it would be more likely that Dwight would want the Magic's FO to make a move to bring CP3 to Orlando rather than Dwight bolting for Brooklyn to play for D-Will.

Durant is a great SF and Westbrook is a great PG why didnt he mention them either?

Thats their denial, because they know Deron is coming to the Nets. They want to make themselves believe he is actually going to the Lakers. Yeah like Orlando is going to want Odom when they can get under the cap from the Nets.

So you joined in November 2011 and your talking about what Nets fans said LAST YEAR?

Im not a homer...Brooklyn is Brooklyn. In case you didnt know Brooklyn is in New York City and basketball is bigger in BK then it is in any other place in NYC.

Im not guaranteeing anything...im not that dumb unlike you.



just because i joined in November doesn't mean i didn't read these threads.


yeah Nets fans said last year, idiots think Jay Z and his 1% is some kind of factor? couldn't even land his boyfriend LBJ :facepalm:

Laker fans can say whatever they want but nothing is changing the fact that Dwight is coming to the Nets, he doesn't want to play with an old Kobe. He wants to play with another superstar and pg who can get him the ball in his prime. He doesnt want to play with Derek Fisher lol.

You're a passionate Nets fan, and I like that.

However, you can't just flat out say that he definitely "won't" go to LA.

There is a 2-dimensional reason Dwight would want to go to LA.

Dimension #1: The Present-He gets to play with an aging yet championship experienced Kobe Bryant, where the two along with Pau Gasol (assuming Magic take Bynum + Odom) can win 2 titles together.


Dimension #2: The post-Bryant era, where when Kobe retires, the Lakers become Dwight's team when Dwight will be in his late 20's. And he'll be playing alongside Pau (in his last 2 or 3 yrs in the league) and still have that twin tower effect (kind of like prime Tim Duncan and aging David Robinson from 99-03). The team will be built around Dwight, he'll be a Laker, and will follow the rich big man tradition of leading teams to championships like George Mikan, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Shaquille O'Neal.

Hey moron did you hear Dwight Howard say he would like to play with Deron Williams or should it be posted again?

Im not saying he wouldnt wanna play with the Lakers, but I think he would wanna play with Deron in Brooklyn just as much if not more considering the big market and that Deron Williams is much younger then Kobe

It doesnt matter how much he owns. The public views him as part of the team.

Lebron wanted to team up with SUPERSTAR(s). The Heat were the only team last year who can offer him that because of the $ they had to spend.

Deron did not say he doesnt want to sign a extension with the Nets. He said he wont sign one now because of the new CBA deal it would not make any sense. Try reading the entire article. Or look at what he tweeted yesterday- ""Don't know why people are tripping just bc I'm opting out doesn't mean that I won't resign with the nets! W/ new CBA it makes sense"

]DWIGHT HOWARD WILL NOT BE TRADED TO THE LAKERS BECAUSE HE CAN NOT FORCE THE MAGIC TO TRADE HIM THERE. THE MAGIC WOULD MUCH RATHER TAKE THE NETS PROPOSAL. BYNUM AND ODOM IS A VERY BAD PROPOSAL COMPARED TO WHAT THE NETS ARE OFFERING[/B]

ReallY? cannot force the Magic? What if Dwight tells them I wont resign with you..And dont act like you know what the Magic front office is thinking and stop being a blind homer.. You even have no idea who the magic front office value more between Bynum and Brook..at the same time OKC might make an offer with westbrook and etc..

As of now... I see 3 potential team who can land Dwight via trade..
Nets.,Lakers and OKC..

with regards to picks I dont see a big difference with the Lakers and Nets offer.. The Rockets pick is top 14 protected for 4 or 5 more years and If the Magic decides to trade Dwight before the season started the team he is going to will have a high draft pick anyway..probably 25-30.. And I really think the magic will insist on trading 2 bad contracts...Turk plus another..

As of know i see this 3 teams landing dwight..

For Nets:
Brook., 2 first rounders and probably their 1st rounder this year
for
Dwight, Turk and maybe another bad contract like Duhon..
(not quite sure if nets will be able to take that on...since exact salary cap for this year is not yet set..duhon is earning close to 3.5 mil)

For the Lakers:
Bynum...,Odom,Ebanks fillers and 2 1st rounders
for
Dwight and Turk..
Also in a seperate deal they can take Duhon's contract via the TE in sasha deal..its 5.6 mil..

Lastly for OKC
Westbrook...Harden...Ibaka, 2 first rounders and Mohamad's and Nate's expiring contract
for
Dwight., Turk and Duhon...

This is what Deron tweeted: “Don’t know why people are tripping just bc I’m opting out doesn’t mean that I won’t (re-sign) with the nets! w/ new CBA it makes sense,” he tweeted.

Try reading this smart guy

Based on the new rules it doesn’t make any sense for him to sign the extension,” Williams’ agent, Jeff Schwartz, told the Bergen Record.

“It has nothing to do with how much he likes New Jersey. Because of the rules he’s going to play the season out and probably opt out of his deal.”

Any way you look at it, Williams loses money if he extends his contract.

According to the new rules, Williams would only earn around $70 million over four years if he signs an extension with the Nets. If he becomes a free agent and re-signs with the franchise? Roughly $101 million over five years.

To correct you..Odom's salary is a team option for next year.. Hell they can even flip him for an expiring and pick this year.. A lot of teams would be interested on him.

Plus you have forgotten that Brook's gonna be a RFA next year also and with lots of teams under the cap and as you portray Brook as a top 5 Center surely some team will overpay for his service... so probably next year Brook's contract will be north of 10 mil..

If I'm the Magic I will clearly take OKC's young players..

harden, westbrook and ibaka will be a very good core to build on.. If indeed OKC makes an offer..

Apparently CP3 lol; however if he takes LAC off of his list, we (Magic) might be able to nab him, seeming as how we could offer something better (Nelson, Redick, Bass & picks) than NYC (Billups, Fields & Balkman?). And plus, we wouldn't need him to extend immediately, once he sees how dominant we could be with him and Dwight, it would be hard to walk away.

PG - CP3/Duhon
SG - QRich/Liggens(current 2011 pick)
SF - Hedo/Harper(current 2011 pick)
PF - (MLE signing)/Anderson
C - Dwight/Orton

We could always fill out the rest of the roster via FA, a lot of vets would be coming off of the books (Carter, Hill, maybe even TMac lol) and there are a few solid PFs that would could sign with the MLE (Baby, KMart, maybe CLandry)... With D12 and CP3 recruiting, we could become a legit contender year-in, year-out.

lol this guy does not know hot to read. From the article YOU JUST POSTED:


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Deron Williams' agent says his client will not sign an extension with the New Jersey Nets during the season.

"Based on the new rules, it doesn't make any sense for him to sign the extension," Jeff Schwartz told The Bergen (N.J.) Record. "It has nothing to do with how much he likes New Jersey. Because of the rules, he's going to play the season out and opt out of his deal."


Williams
Sources close to the team said the Nets aren't concerned by the news, saying they knew it was going to happen.

It is not surprising that Williams would take this route. He can earn roughly $30 million more by opting out at the end of the season and re-signing with the Nets, if that's what he decides to do.

Williams echoed those thoughts on Twitter.

"Don't know why people are tripping just bc I'm opting out doesn't mean that I won't resign with the nets! W/ new CBA it makes sense," a post on his Twitter account read.

According to the new CBA, when it is ratified, Williams can sign a two-year extension during the season that would be tacked on to the two years left on his current contract, bringing the total value of the deal to approximately four years and $70 million.

If he waits until after the season, he could get a contract for five years worth $100 million from the Nets, or a four-year, $70 million deal from anybody else.

I care about grammar on this site. I've actually made a name for myself in the Piston forum about being the snarkiest guy about using bad grammar. But everyone there save a few really like me. ;)

Well I for sure am a gentleman. DoMeFavors is one. Bradholt isn't bad. The new KBPauD12 guy is one of the few mature Laker fans here. VinceCarter just gave a nice warm welcome to KBPauD12. We're all gentlemen, aside from you my friend. ;)



See that's the thing:

I have a real life so i could care-less what a tool bag or two thinks of me on here........it's a fun little sports site.

Your right my bad i will stop. He thinks the Nets are actually a desirable city and or is even talked about with popularity like the real teams.

In this case I am more embarrassed for you. Domefavors - as silly as his beliefs are - he is genuine. You are just looking to bait and start ish. I enjoy debating with the informed posters that care to share their pov and listen to others. You on the other hand...

Well I guess baiters gonna bait.

You may be correct here but when you want your points to be taken seriously you need to show some good grammar.

Good and interesting sports conversations can happen when you don't necessarily have to accept the other person's opinions, but you respect or have a minute sense of consideration for their opinions. That's what makes sports talk so fun.

You can do without insults and childish remarks.

you did make some excellent points on D12 possible suitors in previous post.

I know that after this season there is a "team option" on Bynum for next year
but i thought Odom was a guaranteed left next year. If the Lakers took Hedo off their hands plus let Odom and Bynum walk that would be a ton of cash!

I have no idea what you are talking about I just googled it. Considering Eli is Peyton's younger brother it makes sense that he would look like it....

Your smart enough to know this is a sports forum, do you realize that this thread is about Dwight Howard and not "corky" Manning?

The Nets dont even play in the same state as the Knicks. And the Knicks made the playoffs the first time last year in 7 years.

Hahaha if you ever heard my voice in real life you'd know that although I dress and look like a gentleman, I ain't no gentleman. Haha!

I still can't believe Hedo got that contract from Toronto way back in 09 or whatever. I know it's a bit off topic but I called from day one when he signed it he'd choke in Toronto. Lol.

That would be nice cap relief for LA. What is their payroll now like 90 still?

I'm over the Corky thing because you just don't get it! Your not going to either.

The Knicks don't have to be good, they can suck for 20 years but still have a historic team, historic arena. It's the name on the jersey pal. Look at the Celtics after the 80's! crap until 2008! eventually stars will always line up and play for the big names (Lakers,Celtics,Knicks) it's called history.............That's why guys like M.J, Kobe and LBJ always get geared up to play the Knicks even when they suck. Those guys come into the Garden and drop 50-60 point games.

Its not that hard to get 50 or 60 point games against one of the worst defensive teams ever.

and why do you keep bringing up the Knicks, nobody has talked about them except for you?

Just over 90 mill


I don't know if you remember but the Lakers were interested in Hedo right before he signed with Toronto. I was like NO!!!!

None of them were free agents.

J-Kidd was traded from the Suns for Marbury. Carter was traded from the Raptors for Zo + fillers. K-Mart was a lottery #1 overall draft pick for NJ in 2000. RJ was drafted by the Houston Rockets and traded on draft day to NJ.

Howard isn't a free agent either.

The fact is that none of those guys demanded to be traded from NJ..they were all very happy being a Net.

Very true, J-Kidd and RJ I think had the best stretch of his careers when they were Nets. In fact, J-Kidd was an MVP candidate in 2002

His time with New Jersey and leading them to 2 straight finals appearances in 02 and 03 are highly underrated and overlooked.

The Nets memories I have of J Kidd and RJ are the best (and VC for a couple years). The team was so fun to watch. Jason Kidd is so fun to watch, not many player like him. And RJ was so good for us before Chauncy Billups fouled him and got him hurt.

Miss those days.
